Life long skills
Learning something new usually comes with learning facts as well. The same goes for baking with sourdough. You’ll have a recipe and you’ll need to weigh the precise amount of water, flour, starter and salt. But learning to bake with sourdough also comes with many intangable skills. Skills that you can’t weigh or measure. The more you bake and try, the more you will learn. You will develop a “feeling” for when the dough is right and experience, which will definitely come with trail and error, will teach you when a starter is strong enough and ready to be used.
With these tips I also want to take you along some of those skills that you can’t learn by just doing, you have to experience then. That will ultimitely give you so much joy. Because you will gain many new skills that nobody can take away for you, but you can only develop them further. And, maybe even more beautiful, you can pass them on to someone else.
